Q and A

Give me a short scouting report on yourself as a player. What are your strengths?

  • My strengths are that I am a very versatile player, I can play both the guard spot and finish well in the paint. I can see the floor well and play tough defense.

Can you tell us one unusual thing about yourself that others may not know?

  • I am probably one of the most competitive people you will ever meet.

What's the best part of playing high school basketball and why?

  • The best part of playing high school basketball is definitely all the relationships and friendships I have made. My teammates are all some of my best friends and we have made some of the best memories together.

Tell me about the outlook for your team this year. What are the strengths of your team?

  • We have been working extremely hard on our defense, and that will work to our advantage this year. We also have returning players with lots of experience, and we have many scoring threats on the floor.

What other activities are you involved in at the high school level?

  • I am involved in basketball, volleyball, softball, school choir, and student council.

What type of training do you do in the offseason?

  • I play AAU with MN Rise, I also play summer league with our school ball team, go to college camps, and go to daily workouts in the summer.
